I just install a Ubuntu 12.10 and building jdk8 fails. It has a gcc 4.7.

After some search, I find the bug was fixed by Mikael with

   7172226: HotSpot fails to build with GCC 4.7 because of stricter c++
argument dependent lookup

However, it seems the code changes there were reverted in another change
later by Jon with:

   7045397: NPG: Add freelists to class loader arenas.

Is there anything going wrong?
